There was plenty of game-long action when the Langley Saxons and McLean Highlanders recently met in high school baseball and girls softball games at Langley at the same evening time and date.
In all, the four neighborhood rival teams combined to score 49 runs.
McLean rallied from a 10-6 deficit to win, 15-11, in baseball. Langley nipped the Highlanders, 12-11, in softball by scoring twice in the bottom of the seventh inning.
The four teams amassed 52 hits, with the Saxons having the most, 21, by any team in the softball contest.
The softball teams combined for 32 hits.
There also were scads of walks, wild pitches and errors made in the two games.
The baseball contest lasted just under four hours.
The teams have had many memorable games over the years, but those two on the same night would rival any as far as production of runs and hits.
